Our newest experience in Hana has us hot under the collar. Beginning this month, we’re introducing Firestarting! Our Fire by Friction class covers the basics of the primitive skill.
For 45 minutes, our guides will walk you through the Bow Drill – a technique that dates back to the 4th millennium BC. No lighter or matches here, the Bow Drill uses friction and a spindle to create heat. The heat creates burnt sawdust, which produces ember – the magic tool! The ember is then added to the tinder and we’re taught how to nurture that into a flame!
The class is not only perfect skill for life’s adventure, but allows us to do something that our smart phones just can’t! Take that, Siri.
Come channel your inner “Pele” with our exciting fire starting class!
